We normally go to the mom and pop places for a more personalized, intimate
experience.  However, having a 6 month old baby, we wanted a little more
established place and the choices are few for infant care.

The resort was excellent.  Typical, tropical hotel rooms.  A little dated
on styling (we were in the Caribbean section, I believe the other sections
are newer, updated) but, very clean and comfortable.  Great food with 16
restaurants to choose from and top shelf drinks, all inclusive.  Day care
for our son was excellent, he enjoyed being there and had fun.  Diving and
child care included.

Two tank dives were good.  Went farther away to better reefs, the
"house" reefs were not good, typically go there for the one tank
dives.  A lot of nice dives on walls, lots of grey reef sharks, a few
turtles, permits, tarpons and a lot of lion fish.  Wasn't a huge mix of
smaller fish or great quantities.  You need to go with a dive buddy,
otherwise, you get stuck with the crowd of OW and AOW divers.  Either way,
they pushed you to keep dives around 40 - 45 mins.  If you buddy dive, you
can get in first and out last and stretch that to 50 mins.  Divemasters
didn't really point out much, they tended to just keep the pace of the

If you are looking for a little less intesive dive trip with other
distractions at the resort, this is the place.  If you are looking for
excellent diving and the whole experience, you might want to look at other
dive shops or another location.
